Students walking around campus in the sunshine

Campus life and city living

UWE Bristol gives you a best-of-both worlds experience when it comes to campus life and city living. It can be hard to visualise where our campuses are within the city and where the different 'villages' are so we have created this illustrated map to help you put the pieces together.

To explore this map you can zoom using the +/- icons, your scroll wheel or pinch on touch screen devices.

City Campus

Explore all that the City Campus has to offer. Our creative and cultural industries campus is a mix of energising urban spaces, tranquil harbourside studios, and our campus hub, Bower Ashton. Here you’ll find award-winning, industry-standard facilities for the School of Art and Design and the School of Film and Journalism.

Glenside Campus

View a map of the local conveniences and attractions on the doorstep of our Glenside Campus. Set in beautiful grounds in the Fishponds area of the city, Glenside Campus is three miles northeast of the centre. Picturesque and well-equipped, it’s an inspirational place to study, and is home to many of our allied health, nursing and midwifery students.


We've got some great options both on campus and in the city centre so you can decide where is best for you to live.
